Labor Day Picnic Inspiration

Labor Day Simple Picnic Inspiration

1. Badminton Set / 2. Lunea Melamine White Dinnerware (not fragile!) / 3. Peterboro Handmade Picnic Basket / 4. Amara Pure New Wool Picnic Blanket / 5. Acrylic Stemless Wine Glass / 6. Table In a Bag (FSC certified!) / 7. Weck Canning Jar / 8. Small Metal Lantern / 9. Bocce Ball Set

We’re headed to a party that I’m not hosting on labor day, but I thought it would be fun to put together a little Labor Day picnic inspiration anyway.
